GSEU Albany Rally January 8
We put together proposals for pay raises for all Graduate and Teaching Assistants but we need your help to make campus-level raises a reality. I know many of you are active members of your department rGSOs and if you bring work-related issues to the table at GSO meetings, we can pressure the powers that be on your concerns that aren't explicitly protected by the union contract, but that we have the people power to demand.
We are hoping to start this new year with a sit down meeting with campus administrators to talk over our concerns about the gym fee. That took our voices coming together against the fee, as union members and as students.
One excellent way for us to strengthen our presence is gaining support from UUP, the faculty and staff union on campus. Let's show solidarity and join them at their pre-State of the State Address Rally at the NYS Capitol on January 8, 2013.
You have a chance to make concrete change with your union on our campus in a variety of ways: meetings with administrators, participating in and showing up to press conferences, writing letters to the editor, staging rallies and/or becoming a steward.
Please contact Business Agent Bill Whalen for more information.
Please join us at the Rally to Save Health Care Services and Jobs at SUNY Downstate Medical Center on Tuesday January 8, 2013. The rally will be at the Well of the Legislative Office Building, 198 State St Albany NY and will being at 12 noon.
